Upcoming Heart Catheterization for Little Miss Ivy

Pin It
 2 1/2 Amazing months of a healthy girl! No hospital stays, No pulmonary effusions, No Edema! 

 This little girl has amazed us. Not just by the way she carries on, but by the way she does it with such joy! She wears her oxygen day and night but gets so excited for  her moments off the oxygen to play un tethered for a while. She takes her 21 syringes of medication with no hesitation now, no bribery needed. She loves that she has become a little girl and can run and play now. She has discovered her independence and is often found trying to do big kid things saying, I Do It MYBYSELF!

On August 5th Ivy will head back to Lucile Packard Children's for her next heart Catheterization. It will have been 3 months since her last one and we have high hopes that this Cath will hold wonderful news for our baby girl!

 We need to hear that Ivy's pulmonary hypertension has lessened. That her pressures are at an acceptable level for a transplant. Or, our biggest hope, yes, this one is our hope for a miracle, we pray that the results show that her heart is recovering and after some much needed rest and all of these heart failure medications, it is working! That it is recovering and that we may be able to save the heart she was born with. We know whatever the plan, it will be the perfect plan for Ivy Joy. 

Before We head to Stanford, the girls will be in their cousins wedding and we will get to spend a whole week with our family there. So many relatives still yet to meet little Ivy! The girls can hardly wait! 

Thank you for keeping our daughter in your thoughts and prayers. So many of you have emailed to check on her and left comments assuring that your family continues to keep her in your prayers. We love and appreciate you all so much!

That little girl is one spunky kid! Her spirit and determination jump right off your blog page. Lexi seems so devoted to her and the two of them to each other. I hope and pray that this continues to be a story of recovery for this little miracle child.
I love seeing the pictures of the "littles" and "bigs" together as well.
Good luck little one!

Will pray for miracles and that's God will exceeds your dreams for Miss Ivy. Your little peanut looks like she has added a pinch of well needed weight. Still sayin' she would make a great spokes person for Doritos.

I have just fallen in love with little Ivy. I love the fact that her little body is gaining weight and she just looks so darn healthy. My prayer is that her heart is HEALED. That the cath yields results that blow the MDs off their feet. My prayer is that the heart that God made for her is doing just fine and getting stronger evey second. Beth
